This week's challenge was all things office supplies! I knew I loved office supplies but apparently I love to keep office supplies all.over.the.house! The key to all things KonMari is to make sure that similar items are kept in one spot - and one spot only! Never let them spread to other parts of the house (easier said than done, I know!).
*TRUTH STATEMENT - We have WAY too much stuff. We know this and have known this but working through this method has exposed this on a grand scale. I don't share this with you to show how much we have but merely to show you how much stuff accumulates if you don't deal with it. I'm sharing in hopes that someone will be encouraged and begin taking back their life from their stuff. We all deserve to be surrounded by only things that we love and bring us joy!
I've had quite a few friends reach out to me and wonder, "how can you get rid of so much stuff" and "have you missed anything yet?" I can honestly tell you, as of this point, it is very easy to get rid of stuff. I fully understand that less is more and the less stuff you have, the less chance you have for clutter. By getting rid of so much, I'm appreciating what I have so much more. And, cross my heart, I promise I haven't missed one.single.thing that I've tossed or donated!
Thank you for stopping by and checking in to see how the progress is going! If you are working through de-cluttering and organizing - stay strong! You can do this! It really is worth it!
